The Project

Installing two working pits and one full MOT pit into a newly built workshop.

The Problem

Extremely difficult ground conditions where 200mm of soil was covering sand which was deeper than the pits. Premier were unaware of this problem.


To use driven sheet piling – 80% of which was later reclaimed.


Installation took a little longer than was originally estimated. Using conventional pit construction methods would have resulted in many extra days on site. The delighted client now has a water tight pit, that is an asset to his operation.
